I've just had to revisit entropy stuff that I touched on in my 1973 physics course - Penrose will burst my head for sure!

For some books like that, I have to pause then go and read up on something, then get back into it. So it's not reading one book, it's like reading a small library.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Indeed. Penrose has written the main body of the book as "accessible" - with detailed equations and complex stuff for experts in a huge appendix which I doubt will get much of my attention.

My brain is sure to suffer, but no meltdowns as yet!
Is this the book where Penrose states that time existed before the universe existed although it couldn't be measured back then?

Do I sound like a fuckin' people person?

After Penrose's maths laden epic, I need something lighter to ease the brain.
Vicky is an old chum and we climbed many a Munro back in the 90's while she was building up for her serious epic.
